Algerian national and FC Metz attacking midfielder Farid Boulaya has taken away the honors of the Ligue 1 POTM in FIFA 21 for January. If you need a little boost from the bench, you might want to pick up the CAM. Here’s how you can complete his SBC.

Farid Boulaya’s Ligue 1 POTM card in FIFA 21 isn’t much to write home about. After netting two goals and two assists for Metz in January, including a stellar free kick against Brest, the 72-rated midfielder has received an upgrade to 82 with this SBC.

While his stats may not be impressive compared to other POTM cards ⁠— with 83 Pace, 88 Dribbling, and 80 Shooting ⁠— players might be enticed by his five-star skills and four-star weak foot.

However, if you’re a fan of Metz, maybe want to show some Algerian national pride ⁠— or you just are a completionist ⁠— this SBC is a cheap and easy one for you to do. Here’s how you can get the Farid Boulaya Ligue 1 POTM card in FIFA 21.

Requirements and Expiry

You have plenty of time to sit on this SBC. Like other POTM SBCs, Boulaya’s will be available for the whole month, right up until March 18.

You only need to complete one challenge for it too, using an In-Form card as well as one player from Ligue 1.

It’s a straight-forward and easy SBC, which is probably why the card isn’t as impressive as other POTM entries like Ilkay Gundogan in the Premier League.

  • # of players from Ligue 1: Min 1
  • IF players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 80
  • Team Chemistry: Min 80
  • # of players in the Squad: 11


This challenge shouldn’t set you back much. The main burden of the cost is that one In-Form. You shouldn’t have to spend more than around 25,000 to 30,000 coins on the card, and if you have an untradeable In-Form you can splash in, you’re laughing.

FIFA 21 TOTW 22 LIVE: New Team of the Week cards revealed

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 22 has been revealed by EA SPORTS, with a number of new TOTW 22 players being added to Ultimate Team. 

Fans of Everton and Borussia Dortmund will have been waiting all week to see if their Derby heroes, Richarlison and Jadon Sancho, lead the charge with upgraded cards. Of course, that expectation comes after ousting their opponents Liverpool and Schalke 04 in local clashes over the weekend. Real Madrid maestro Casemiro also looked like a shoe-in based on many people’s predictions.

Lautaro Martinez is another one fans have claimed should be in TOTW 22, after the Inter striker dismantled local title rivals Milan in yet another February grudge match. The 3–0 win, which saw Martinez score twice, put Inter in first place.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo, including when the Team of the Week lineup go into packs, and how the confirmed team matches up against Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

Jadon Sancho missed out last week, but the young Englishman may be included in TOTW 16 instead.
Jadon Sancho may have earned his spot in TOTW 22 after demolishing Dortmund’s local rivals Schalke.
